#9 is kind of too obnoxious. NCSTMOM kept making me think North Carolina State Mom, which was weird. I kind of like, "We don't really approve of Incest, we just want to see what happens"--same joke as #9 but not as obnoxious for some reason.

I guess #9 is too obnoxious b/c there's an actual picture of an actual child; b/c Downs Syndrome is really not the end of the world, and b/c it's technically incorrect--it usually results from aging eggs not incest. I mean, really, an extra chromosome has nothing particular to do with incest. That's just bad science.
